IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! This week’s top news includes information about our temporary voluntary disclosure program for wholesalers and importers of alcohol beverages to address unreported changes in control or proprietorship, and an invitation to start using Pay.gov to file tax returns and operations reports online.

HAVE YOU HAD A CHANGE IN CONTROL OR PROPRIETORSHIP IN YOUR IMPORTER OR WHOLESALER BUSINESS?

Through December 31, 2019, TTB is offering a temporary voluntary disclosure program (see Industry Circular 2019 – 2) to address the significant number of wholesalers and importers of alcohol beverages who have undergone a change in control (a change in who controls a business) or change in proprietorship (a change in the person or entity that owns a business) but failed to file a new permit application within 30 days of the change, as required by law.

This temporary program provides a streamlined approach that allows eligible wholesalers and importers to simultaneously voluntarily disclose the unreported changes in control or proprietorship and file an application for a new permit while benefiting from the enforcement discretion described in section 6 of Industry Circular 2019 – 2.

WHY NOT FILE YOUR TTB TAXES AND YOUR OPERATIONAL REPORTS ONLINE

Pay.gov is a program of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Bureau of the Fiscal Service, that processes payments made to the federal government. TTB taxpayers are encouraged to use Pay.gov to electronically file excise tax returns, make tax payments, and file operational reports.

In order to view and submit TTB forms via Pay.gov you must first complete a TTB User Agreement, TTB F 5000.31. If you self-register directly from the Pay.gov site you will not have access to TTB forms. See Getting Started: Pay.gov Enrollment Instructions for additional information.

To become a Pay.gov user, you must either have a Signing Authority (SA) or Power of Attorney (POA) on file with TTB that specifically allows you to submit federal excise tax returns and/or reports of operations for the company for which you are enrolling. We recommend that SA and POA forms be filed electronically in Permits Online by submitting an Amended Application for Entity Information.

So what are you waiting for? Enroll to use Pay.gov today and forget about mailing forms and checks the old-fashioned way.
